About Blackmore vale Dairy

Our Story

BV Dairy was established in 1958 and we have come a long way since our award-winning Clotted Cream was first sold in the local area. Started by the Highnam family, in 2024 BV Dairy joined the First Milk family, becoming part of this British farmer-owned regenerative co-operative.

Over the years, both the business and the range of speciality products has grown and developed to form one of the most respected and successful dairies in the South West of England today. 

BV Dairy is a modern, well equipped production facility situated on the edge of North Dorset’s lush and fertile Blackmore Vale and employing the latest manufacturing technology. 

We have more than 180 colleagues and understand all aspects of the dairy industry and are proud of our strong relationship with the local farming community.  

We have a real focus on sustainability, and milk is sourced from Red Tractor accredited farms within a 30-mile radius. We work closely with our supplying farmers to ensure their happy, healthy cows provide us with the best possible quality milk.  This is essential for us to be able to produce our unique range of high-quality specialist chilled airy products.
